David Sabella, who created the role of Mary Sunshine in the Tony Award winning revival of Chicago, returns to the cabaret stage of Judy's Chelsea with a brand-new act. Entitled "Sing, You Sinners," Sabella's new program will debut at Judy's on April 27 and will play Saturdays, May 4, 11 and 19 and Sundays, May 12 and 19, all at 8:30 PM. Sabella's show — celebrating "our favorite vices" — will include both standard and contemporary material, including "No Moon at All," "Easy to Love" Bob Ost's "Slow," Adam Guettel's "Icarus" and several others. Mark Hartman will serve as Sabella's musical director, who will lead a jazz trio.
Sabella made his Broadway debut in drag in Kander and Ebb's Chicago. His Off-Broadway theatre credits include So Long 174 Street, FOXY and Watch Your Step. As a countertenor in classical music, he won the Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition in 1995. Sabella's first cabaret outing at Judy's, "No More Mrs. Nice Guy," was a sold-out success.
Judy's Chelsea is located at 169 Eighth Avenue. There is a $15 cover charge and a $10 minimum for all of Sabella's shows. For reservations, call (212) 929-5410.
